That is the one I have (From Microcenter) and is great! Evga is IMO a preferred company along with ASUS. PNY is good to but never used them, didn't they do ATI cards at one time?

That reference cooler can't compare to the after market setups.

OK thanks again. I will probably go with the one JIHAD posted.
Just got back today, and I'm instantly noticing how "laggy" it looks. It will go up to 150 FPS, then down to 45FPS. All low settings. I'm going to try locking my FPS at 60 or 90, see if it makes it more stable.

Like to use as an example, playing MW3 on console at 60FPS looks WAY more smooth then what I am getting, even though most of the time BF3 is at over 100FPS. Edited by xSteeLer

You want either the FTW, or the Gigabyte, the biggest reason being that they use the 680 PCB.

I have two of these, and they're amazing, aren't they?

The three fans, with the 680 PCB is amazing.

[color=#ffa500][size=4][font=comic sans ms', cursive]Of course! Mine OCs like a beast, easily beating a stock 680! I'm not even thinking about upgrading my card yet... it chews through BF3 easily enough (even when recording) If you're running both of your cards in SLI, they must be pretty bored.[/font][/size][/color]

The idea was to buy something now, for the next 3-4 years. I don't think I'll be behind the 8 ball anytime soon for an upgrade.
